"The European Commission made the decision on removal of a penalty on Google of €1.49 billion for illegal abuse of a dominant position in the market of services of Internet search today. Google allowed violation of norms on the competition at placement of online advertizing and its allocation in search results in network. All these violations are recorded in contractual obligations which Google imposed to the partner owners of websites", - she said. As Vestager explained, antimonopoly investigation of European Commission against Google covers the period from 2006 to 2016. It is noted that the European Commission presented on Wednesday the whole block of charges against the American company on various marketing practicians, beginning from removal at the first positions by search with use of Google on the Internet of websites which are partners of Google, to a payment to mobile device manufacturers and operating systems to them that they included the installed applications of search on the basis of Google. The EC emphasized that these practicians were directed to "cementation of a dominant position of Google in the European market and preventing of free competition in the sphere of search and advertizing on the Internet". Earlier it became known that the videkhosting of YouTube can resort to excessive blocking of content to limit legal risk because of amendments to the legislation of the EU on copyright.
